Keep your decor clean and fresh.
A home is one of the most important investment that a person make in their life. A home is your personal branding, it is the physical window into, or a representation of, who you are. When people enter the front door they are greeted with the essence of you (your individuality, your taste, your attitude, your hygiene, your success, all your likes and dislikes). Like it or not, these are some judgements that is formed the minute a person enters a home.
This is one of the reason why, most people take pride in their space. They want a relaxed, beautiful, and enjoyable space to “live out themselves”, and to entertain their guests. Because of this, many people invest priceless times to finding the right home in the right neighbourhood, and is willing to alter their budget to get into the right space. People also spend countless hours in search for the right paint colour, lighting, drapery, furniture and accessories to decorate their home… Because their home reflects them.
This is also one big reason why it is so hard for home owners to “depersonalize” their space when preparing their home for sale. It is an invasive process. People find it difficult to receive or accept negative feedbacks about their space, just like they would about their attire.
So, when preparing a home for sale, it is important to first, desensitize yourself from your home. This, will enable you to neutralize the depersonalize your personal style, and create a style that will attract the majority of potential buyers for your home. When in doubt, It is best to keep things neutral, clean and at a minimal… Unless, of course, your home and your personal style is already that of what most buyers desire.
